-47. look at the state of florida. one that mitt romney is counting on as a lynchpin of the base. 29 electoral votes. president obama up among likely voters 49-47. in ohio, the state most look at as the potential tipping point. president obama has a six-point lead. he's gone hard on the auto bailout and hitting mitt romney. that's a point of contention. because ohio has been such a tough nut for the romney campaign to crack, that's a reason they are making a late play into pennsylvania. it depends on turnout organization, especially the composition of the electorate. what portion of white voters versus hispanics. definitely a lower level of intensity and young people. barack obama dominates among young people. mitt romney among seniors who are more motivated to vote. how much will that carry the day? we'll find out tomorrow. >> if you're looking for an early tell tomorrow, if you could only look at one state early on, virginia. if it's decisive either way does that suggest the rest of the night collapses in that direction? >> almost in any of the battleground states other than ohio w

whether on the gulf coast, florida and unfortunately in the metropolitan area in new york. the supply siders are doing everything they know how to do. so you broaden utility crews from across the country, trying to get electricity restored, the oil companies are doing everything they can do within the limits of safety, and regulation to get supply out to the public. we also have to do something different on the demand management side. what's happening is that the demand side is descending into chaos and you see it in the gas lines. this could get to gunfire if it continues in the way it's going now. my recommendation is for the governors of new jersey, new york and connecticut, come together, go to an odd/even rationing plan, cut the demand in half every day by going to odd/even rationing. >> based on your driver's license or based on the -- >> based on the license plate. >> like we did back in the '70s. >> exactly. so you've cut the demand in half by definition of what numbers on your car license plate. take care of the service providers, taxi cabs, i will mow drivers, other service
